And finally… Council puts former World War Two bunker up for sale

AM_Emergency_BunkerA bunker built to survive a direct hit from World War Two’s most powerful bombs has been offered for sale.

Prospective buyers have until 2pm on Wednesday 6 December 2017 to make their offers for the subterranean property in the Raigmore area of Inverness.

The Highland Council expects a six-figure sum for the property.

The Inverness Emergency Bunker includes a tarmacadam surfaced car park and 2 subterranean levels which were built in 1941 to house the RAF during the Second World War. The bunker was built to survive a direct hit from the most powerful bombs of the time. The structure is built with thick concrete walls and ceilings.

During the 1980’s the facility was enhanced to enable it to withstand nuclear, biological or chemical attacks. As a result the premises now benefit from blast and sealed doors, decontamination facilities, two diesel generators to power the building and an air filtration system to provide safe air in the event of nuclear, biological or chemical attack.

The property site is set in a forested area of mature broadleaved trees.
